I am a UKCP accredited psychotherapist & also an Accredited EMDR Therapist. EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) can offer a rapid resolution of issues such as PTSD, OCD, anxiety, self esteem & phobias. I also offer mindfulness based therapy for clients who are looking for a more reflective enquiry into their lives.
I offer long and short term therapy for a range of issues including: anger management, stress, addictions & relationship difficulties. My approach is to offer a contemplative approach through which we undergo a joint exploration of the client's present experience. When done with mindfulness and attention this helps us relate to our present experience and how this is informed by our past conditioning and life experience. I work in Manchester and Altrincham.
